That Lovelight clip (second one) is amazing ! Really underlines how exciting this song must have been to have to seen live .
For Weir to treat the injured cop as a human being, when it would be easy to go with the flow , and just dismiss them a pigs ,is an example of his humanity .
Great clips .
And good job trying to untangle these fragments .
I wonder what from this tour (not just the Dead's performances) is still intact somewhere ?

Weir was following Jerry's lead on the whole cops thing. Jerry- ever the contrarian- was very outspoken around this time about the thing of calling cops 'pigs.'
He liked to say 'if you call them pigs that's what they will become.'
